    Don't turn your back on your football club if this deal falls through.

    People at the club have worked tirelessly for 2 years to bring us, the supporters, 2 of the most enjoyable years in the last 20 years and in some people's lifetime especially the younger fans, to simply turn your back on them because idiots off the field want to drag our club and its fanbase through the mud to please their egos.

    Show them we won't be beaten, we won't turn our back on our club and they won't use us the supporters as pawns in their bigger agenda.

    Stick together now more than ever. back your players your club and the MANAGEMENT, and if that's at St Andrews.... So be it

    THEY WON'T WIN

    Pretty much sums it up for me.

    The amount of people falling for the PR game and giving it the "I'm done and won't ever go again" is shocking. What's the point?

    No chance am I not supporting the club next season. I'd rather chop my left bollock off than let a franchise and a hedge fund dictate who I should support. I went to Northampton and i'll go to wherever we’re playing next season. If the fans don’t go then we’ve let SISU, CCC, Wasps, win.

    That is the aim, every single time.

    Bollocks to them, I wouldn't let any of them get in the way of me watching CCFC.

    I'm in. Will be buying a season ticket no matter what. Even if the groundshare means I can't attend.

    City 'till I die.

    That statement may turn out to be 'City 'till they die' but I'll be supporting the club to try and prevent that happening. No hedge fund or council c**t will get in the way of that.

    Watch out to see who starts off giving it loads to people who say they would still go to watch too... Just need to look on social media to see the accounts that try to whip everybody up.

    Nobody will tell me, they will get fucked right off

    Different circumstances this time in my eyes

    I travel 5000 plus miles a season following my club and I won't have no prick on Facebook or twitter who doesn't go tell me what I am

    whilst i agree with the sentiment i don’t think its as straight forward as that. Whoever is to blame aside - there comes a point when some supporters just feel like enough is enough and are fed up with just blindly following the club and cant help feeling like they are being taken for granted.


    At the moment I live within walking distance to the Ricoh and have had a season ticket for years. i go up with my dad and a few mates. However, I've recently had my first child - and whilst popping to the Ricoh on a Saturday for a few hours wouldn’t have been too much of a problem, having to travel to another city, the additional time and cost makes it a much less easy decision to make. If I don’t go, my dad and his mates wont, so there goes 5 tickets.


    The one saving grace would be that we ground share and the season ticket price is drastically reduced, and some consideration is given in the additional cost of attending the game. This obviously wont happen - as much as i would like it to, which then combined with the fact that we have been allowed to slip into this mess in the first place and the fact that we will be expected to foot the bill so to speak can he enough to change peoples minds.


    This doesn’t make them any less a Sky Blue supporter, and you won't find me and i guess the majority in my position changing teams or anything like that. It just throws in obstacles that makes physically attending and supporting too difficult.

    Didn't go Northampton, will follow the club wherever this time. We're the ones there for negotiation, they are the ones kicking us out.

    Even if I can't go I'll buy a ticket. If they're significantly reduced I'll buy several. I'll bring friends to games and buy tickets for them. I will buy merch, I will by ifollow.

    I'm not a wealthy person, I'm always skint, but I do allow myself enough money to support the club. I will ensure that my financial contribution in no way reduces because of this.

    Didn’t go to Northampton but this is different two season tickets for us but maybe a third, I have had a message from the people I sit with and they have said they are likely to travel as well.

    Fuck the wasps

    You've come up with a perfectly valid reason, you won't be turning your back on the club

    I didn't go to Sixfields but that was entirely due to the inconvenience of it than anything, it may be the same in this case depending on what happens.

    Nobody is having a go at people that simply can't attend outside the city, if they are they're being completely unfair and I think there is understanding for people who will suffer from this. None of us want the club outside Cov.

    If people are struggling to get Birmingham I am sure as a group of fans we can offer lifts if we have space in the car, saying that I may well use the train as that is a big adventure for my boys

    If its a ground share it will split the fan base again along the same lines as last time. Its Sisu's gift to stop the process the ball is in their court with that. Wasps have benefited from our Councils generosity which was wrong but has been proved legal in court. I wish Sisu would look to the surrounding councils to get a new ground built outside the area of influence of CCC. Wasps and CCC can then watch our success despite their obstructive approach. If The owners did break ground it would unite the fan base which would possibly let the majority suffer a temporary ground share. PUSB

    Hopefully the club will be a bit more pro-active this time in ensuring its as easy as possible for fans to attend. if not then the Trust should step in and fill that role.

    The fan base will be split because of PR companies trying to split it, much the same as before. People need to look past that bullshit.
